    When a medical emergency requires a trip to the emergency room, a patient’s attention and desire understandably becomes narrowly focused.

    The ailing individual wants the injury or illness attended to with urgency, expertise and care. They want to move quickly from the waiting room, through triage and into the main treatment area where doctor and nurse attention can fully focus on their needs.

  • Natural leader and career educator offered direction to many

    He was always getting up a game of some kind, usually sandlot football.

    Mark had a knack for gathering my friends and me, most of us 10 years his younger, for a game of football in the fall or baseball in the spring. And he was my own personal trainer, throwing me thousands of football passes or hitting me countless groundballs, trying to make me better.

    But there was more to it than the game. Something much larger than that. The sport was only an avenue enabling Mark to do something far more important than catching or throwing a ball.

    Propaganda machine

    In last Monday’s paper an AP article headlined “Is Obama a Socialist?” appeared. The article concluded he is not.
